Looking around, it’s interesting to see that the upcoming competition (Things and maybe iGTD2) are using tags rather than contexts. Or, rather, contexts will be just one set of tags. It looks to me that the OF interface is going to be cleaner than that of Things, and the simple Planning/Context Mode-button choice is a case in point, when compared with Things’s potentially endless tag bar along the top. There’s a danger with tags of confusion and overloading. But, and it’s quite a big but, there certainly are circumstances in which multiple contexts or tagging would be very useful, and their lack will be seen as limiting. It’d be a shame if people were put off using OF by the imposition of a narrow way of vizualizing their tasks. It’d be good to see a tad more flexibility here.
